Both George A. Frampton and Cecile Meyer Frampton were born in Nebraska and both to families whose primary vocation was farming. Georgeâ€™s family moved to Oklahoma when he was six to participate in the last land rush in Comanche County to prove up on 160 acres of land. This land stayed in the family through his sister Ida who married Art Runyan. They became successful farmers adding many more quarter sections to the original homestead.

Members of the Seacrest Family owned and operated the Lincoln Journal newspaper from 1887 to 1995.
